Our Vision:


We are a community school in the heart of Gibbonsdown - Barry. We are committed to ensuring our families and staff to grow in confidence, independence, resilience and knowledge, so that all flourish and achieve their full potential, while developing a life-long love of learning and of the world around us. We work together with families and across our community to foster positive relationships, supporting each other and acknowledging that Together Everyone Achieves More.


We aim to be a safe, nurturing school, who offers an inspiring broad and balanced curriculum, educating the whole child; supporting them to become ambitious capable learners, enterprising and creative contributors, ethically and informed citizens who are healthy and confident contributors ready to lead a fulfilling life as a valued member of society.

Our Behaviours - Our Oak Field Deal:


At Oak Field Primary School education is our passion. We believe in the intrinsic worth of every individual and that there is nothing the children and adults in our community cannot achieve.  We are committed to:


  • Being safe – Keeping ourselves safe and those around us safe with everything we say and do.

  • Being Respectful – Treating each other as we would like to be treated.

  • Being Kind – To ourselves and each other. Always. We will never regret it.

  • Talking, Talking and Talking! – Talking to each other and trust each other – being HONEST always.

  • Listening, listening and listening! – Listening carefully and be supportive of one another.

  • Be ourselves – Being honest and true to ourselves, and be proud of who we are.

  • Accepting one another – showing empathy, tolerance and understanding of our similarities and differences – being FAIR, being fair does not mean that everyone is treated the same.

  • Being a family – Our Oak Field family – Together Everyone Achieves More! When it goes wrong, we will be RESTORTIVE and seek to mend any differences, so we are stronger together.

  • Being our best – Be our best selves every day.

  • Being proud – Hold our heads up high and love ourselves! – ‘We are Oak Field, We are proud!’.
